Haryana police today began putting names and details of convicted rapists on a government website even as two youths were arrested in Jind district for allegedly recording and circulating the obscene MMS of a teenager.

Haryana police have started a process to put names, addresses and crime details of at least 2,500 convicted rapists in the past about a decade on the website, a senior police official said here today.

However, while putting the details about rapists on websites police will conceal the identity of victims, state crime records bureau director Laik Ram Dabbas said.

Meanwhile, police have arrested two youths for recording and circulating the objectionable MMS of a 17-year-old girl from Popli village at Julana district of Jind.

The accused have been identified as Sumit and Praveen and are students of class 11th and 12th respectively and belong to farmers' families, SHO Rajinder Singh said.

Giving details, he said the incident took place on December 7 whereas the girl got courage to lodge a complaint on Wednesday.

He said that the accused were blackmailing her on the basis of the MMS.
Complaints on gender-related offences continued to reach police stations in Punjab.

Sushil Kumar was arrested by police for allegedly outraging the modesty of a colleague at Zirakpur in Punjab's Patiala district, police said.
